Attention April & May 2008 Mexico brides

Recommended Posts

Did any of you or your guests get pretty sick while you were in Mexico for your wedding (or site visit)? We had several people stay in their rooms for days at a time because they were feeling so bad and couldn't leave the bathroom. We have been discussing the possibility of salmonella poisoning from infected tomatoes. I just wondered if anyone else had trouble as well.

Yes, one of our guests could barely leave the room the whole trip because he was so sick. We knew it was more then the usual Mexican sickness, since it lasted so long, and he tried all the usual remedies, which did not work!

 

We figured it may have been the sushi at the Japense restaurant - since he ate a tone of it the night before it all started.

Not that it's perfect information, but the FDA has cleared tomatoes from several states within Mexico as NOT being related to the salmonela outbreak. These include the following:

 

Aguascalientes, Baja California Norte, Baja California Sur (Cabo), Campeche, Colima, Chiapas, Chihuahua, Distrito Federal, Durango, Guanajuato, Guerrero (Acapulco), Hidalgo, México, Michoacán, Morelos, Nayarit (Puerto Vallarta), Nuevo León, Oaxaca, Puebla, Querétaro, Quintana Roo (Cancun and Riviera Maya) , San Luis Potosí, Sonora, Tobasco, Tamaulipas, Tlaxcala, Veracruz, Yucatán, Zacatecas

All of our guests were fine. I was pretty careful the first while b/c I've had pretty severe food poisoning in Mexico before and stayed away from salads... but as of our wedding night onwards I ate pretty much everything including tomatoes.

I know we've been all over Mexico, the Caribbean and Nicaragua and have never gotten sick like we did at EDR. We had MAJOR diarrhea for 11 days, along with chills and fever at times. It got to the point where I could eat a banana (or anything else for that matter) and it would be completely through me in 9 minutes flat. I know, TMI, but it was unbelieveable. Talk about a colon cleanse, Colonix had nothing on this!

Ok, cool. I hadn't seen (or looked!) for this info yet. It must have been something else!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
